Here Steve Earl talks about "Guitar Town" , he talks also about the song “Think It Over” :

That song and “Good Ol’ Boy (Gettin’ Tough)” were co-written with Richard Bennett, the guitar player on the whole record. As I had the first few songs and knew I was writing the album and I had a record deal, I got on the Oaks’ buses and Deadheaded it out to the West Coast, where the busses were being ferried for a tour which the guys flew to. I road with the bus driver and got to L.A. I did a few different trips. I stayed at Richard Bennett’s house. He was playing guitar with Neil Diamond and had been for 17 years. He was a big influence. He was on the last tracks I did for Epic and produced some songs on the Rollin’ Rock record label in the early ’80s. I knew about him from that and there was a connection from [country singer-guitarist] Rodney [Crowell] because he was in Rodney’s band the Cherry Bombs. We wrote that track. Every note on it is Ricahrd. We made a demo where Richard played all the instruments. We couldn’t beat it. We tried doing it with the band in the studio. Finally, I stood there and sang and Richard played acoustic guitar and Harry Stinson played the snare drum. Richard went back and overdubbed the upright bass and the electric guitar. It’s all Richard and then Harry’s snare drum and me singing.

Hilarious video with The Notorious Cherry Bombs

The tune for this song, Finlandia, is an important Finnish national song (though not Finland's national anthem). The song opens with a beautiful guitar solo by Richard Bennett, called "Fields Of Plenty". The renowned Stuart Duncan on fiddle.
